ObamaCare - ‘as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act.’
State Representative Bill O’Brien of New Hampshire compared Obamacare to the 19th century Fugitive Slave Act, saying "It is a law as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850."
Our always race conscious President Barack Obama picked up that comment and ran with it all the way to Maryland where he fully mocked O'Brien and had the shocked crowd of Obama fans roaring with delight: “The closer we get, the more desperate they get. I mean, over the last few weeks, the rhetoric has just been cranked up to a place I’ve never seen before,” Obama said. "You had a state representative somewhere say that it’s ‘as destructive to personal and individual liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act.’ Think about that: Affordable healthcare is worse than a law that lets slaveowners get their runaway slaves back. I mean, these are quotes. I’m not making this stuff up.”
In reality, the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, was destructive to the liberty of the enslaved, a small minority of America at that time. The ACA, also known as ObamaCare, is destructive to the liberties of almost 100% of free Americans in 2013. I say "almost" 100%, because Obama's elites have been granted relief from having to enroll in ObamaCare. And to quote the President "I'm not making this stuff up."
